    It's still pretty good to have a bigger selection of shows and movies to watch for whatever reason. Might start on the Star Blazers 2199 series after Radiant and Bleach Set 5.

    It's more than just a bunch, they're killing the entirety of Funimation Now and putting it all on Animelab



    Kinda wish Disney would do the same with their Hulu content seeing as we can't get Hulu here.

    Steins:Gate seems fairly easy to do a live action version. I'd watch it to see how it'd work out.

    Is Netflix having one of those issues where they're getting the streaming rights to almost any idea, no matter how bad it seems. I reckon One piece will be pretty bad.

    Oh man, a live action One Piece would be terrible. Steins;Gate would be totally fine, there's nothing really supernatural to shoot as long as they can cast it properly.

    They should remake them as 3D animations, Pixar style, and give up on live actions.

    Beast Stars was good, and was funded by Netflix, but they funded an anime, rather than a live action of an anime. They should do more of that.

    Yup it's just called Castle in the Sky. They're slowly bringing all of the movies out. So far just watched Castle in the Sky and Porco Rocco. I'm mostly waiting for my fav of the bunch Princess Mononoke.

    Finally finished S1 of the 1990s Sailor Moon series. It was decent but you can tell they padded the shit out of it with the Monster of the Week format so it can be aired it every week after school for a year. I've almost finished rewatching S1 of SM Crystal and it's far superior to S1 of the 90s show. No padding, better characterisation and story beats.

    LMAO no, they'd butcher it to hell. Steins;Gate is steeped in Japanese anime/manga otaku culture. They'd "current year" the shit out of it by censoring the deemed "problematic" elements like maid cafes; Daru being a huge nerdy perv. Deeply important things to the plot like the character dynamic between Mayushi and Okabe would probably be seen as "misogynistic". They'd highly likely f*ck with Luka's characterisation as a feminine boy to push SJW propaganda.

    I got it on Animelab. I think they have a free basic membership. I've got premium with animelab as I got annoyed with the same repeating adverts that come up before each episode. Just started on the sequel series, 2202. I think the animation went down a notch or 2 when you compare the season's side by side.

    Yeah I'm watching it on Funimation now. I didn't even need to sign up again and I'm watching it advert free for no charge so it must be free for everyone

    I read the first arc of a fun manga, Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shite shimatta. (I Reincarnated into an Otome Game as a Villainess With Only Destruction Flags). It's an isekai romance comedy about a girl who's trying to avoid her bad fates (death or exile) in the Otome VN world that she's been reincarnated into.

    Chapter 1-22 are a complete story arc, so you can devour that and not have to worry about being left on a cliffhanger.

    There's an anime adaptation that starts airing early April, so that's an option too.

    Really enjoying Girls Last Tour (Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou).

    Two girls wandering a post apocalyptic post apocalyptic Japan (repeat intended).

    Up to episode three of twelve, self contained. Standard 24 minutes. I've been told the ending is terribly depressing.

    Since I finished Star Blazers 2022. I've started watching Phantom Memory Kurau. First couple of episodes are a bit slow as heck. Hopefully it'll pick up in the meantime.

    I'm half expecting this new, annoying guy on One Piece to yell "Tingle" and supply Zoro a map.

    Crunchyroll Originals line-up
    • .
    • In/spectre is out now and is an actual anime adapted from a Japanese light novel (Kyoko Suiri), so that gets a pass.
    • Three with potential are adaptations of three of the most popular Korean manhwa on the Webtoon site, so there's potential.
    • The rest? Western originals produced by Crunchyroll's in-house animation studio. Piss off.

    Promare is a spectacular film. Highly recommended.

    Started watching Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory aka Season 4. If you haven't watched any of the FMP shows before this don't bother with this it starts off after straight after S2.

    I've been watching Speed Grapher. It's quite a gritty super natural thriller where the dub I think is excellent in it's most part apart from one or two people.

    Emilia at the end of the latest rerelease of re:zero

    Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight

    I just finished marathoning season 2 of Sailor Moon Crystal, WAY better than Sailor Moon R (1993 season 2). That being said, R is still decent. They changed a lot for R, eg loads more main characters die during the Black Moon arc and in more brutal ways; themes of incest (and of course none of the usual "monster of the week" structure). During R, I really liked the Makai Tree filler at beginning of the season.

    Sailor Moon R: The Movie was great too, recommended. Good action and high production values. It takes place somewhere in the middle of the series. Mamoru plays a key part of the plot this time around, which was refreshing. He's usually a sidelined, largely useless character in the '90s series. The Blu-ray is very nice and crisp, you can tell that it's taken from actual filmstock rather than whatever shitty SD masters that they used for the same main series (they "lost" the original celluloid masters, muppets).

    Right in the first episode of Sailor Moon S (1994 season 3), there's a joke about a dude unknowingly picking up a trap crossdresser on Usagi's English test, LOL. I guess that the censorious SJW localisers at Viz Media/Madman/etc had no clue that "New-half" means trap.

    Watching Steins Gate, finding it really rough going but everyone says keep watching and it gets better/amazing.
